London’s top emporium for electronic sounds, Phonica Records cherry-pick the best dance records in store right now or about to drop.
One of the best things about shopping at a brick and mortar record store is having a clerk on hand to recommend music. Having said that finding the time to get physical can be a bit of a luxury, so we thought we’d bring the record store to you: inviting our friends at Phonica to pick out 10 essential dance records you need to own.
As you might do in-store, the brief was broad: “Give us anything dance-y”. Highlights this month include a percussive assault courtesy of Balearic maestro Jose Padilla, twisted post-punk from ’81 on Dark Entries, and a classic Jeff Mills repress.
